Shadow formatting options in Articulate Quizmaker 360

Use these options to customize an object's shadow:


Choose one of the ready-made shadow options. To customize it, use the other shadow settings (see below).


Use the Color selector to choose a theme color or standard color. To pick a color from anything visible on your screen, click Eyedropper, then select a color that’s visible on your screen. For even more flexibility, choose More Colors and do any of the following:

  • Click the color you want—either a square color swatch or a color in the spectrum area.
  • Create a custom color by entering color values in the Hue/Sat/Lum fields, the Red/Green/Blue fields, or the Html field.
  • Use the eyedropper tool to match the color of anything visible on your screen. Just click the eyedropper, then click any color on your screen.

If the color you've chosen is something you want to save for easy selection later, click Add to Custom Colors. The color will get added to the bank of custom colors in the lower left corner. When you're finished, click OK to close the window.

Transparency, Size, Blur, Angle, and Distance

Drag the slider or enter a specific value for any of these properties to customize your shadow.
